What happened after the 1919 Influenza Pandemic?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:20 pm on 14 May 2020

The 1918 Influenza Pandemic had a devastating impact on NZ but what happened the year after?  The pandemic came in the same year as World War I ended. By analysing 1919 in NZ perhaps we can learn what might happen in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. Historian Grant Morris from Victoria University looks back to see from this past experience what we might expect as we move forward.
